The radiotherapy of lung cancer with curative total doses (56-60 Gy), is limited by the presence of critical organs (esophagus, spinal cord). The use of computed TPS (Therapy Planning System) allows to the radiotherapist to calculate the values and to obtain dose distribution to the organs at risk, in the limit of biological tolerance levels. In our work, we present the calculation of the absorbed doses of Co60, at the spinal cord, at a patient with a cancer of the right lung, during irradiation.
